is one of the statues there, and just to set you up shiva, you can look at it, it's a very heavy statue. but can you focus there. >> i'll hold it up. >> okay. hold it, please. it's very heavy, an antique. now that statue is the statue of shiva, or shankara, or mahadev - these are the different words. we have three principles - the principle of creation is brahma; the second principle is vishnu, which is sustenance or maintenance; and the third principle is the principle of dissolution, which is shiva principle, and from dissolution, the cycle of creation continues. so we have a cyclic concept of beginning, sustenance, and another beginning, which is called sansara - a cycle of phenomenological worry; it keeps on moving and moving and moving, so we have thousands of lives to go through. so shiva was the only god who could really accept, who could really bare the powerful weight of the ganges coming from the heaven. think about the gravity and think about the power that the ganges would have. so he worshipped shiva and shiva said, "okay." now shiva resides in the himalayas mountain
